With 12% of all websites on the internet powered by WordPress it definitely proves how powerful and popular this open source (free) content management system really is. The down side is that is now WordPress is the most targeted for spam and malicious virus.

The best way to protect your website from is to keep your database and theme backed up. The best way is with this free plugin – BackWPup. BackWPup is the perfect tool for backing up your WordPress files and data base. You can even send the back up files to your email address so you always have them. It’s easy to install with directly from the plugins panel of your admin page. Contact me if you need help to install and set up the plugin. Then we’ll all rest a little easier. 🙂 Thank you for flying with WordPress.
